INVITATION TO BID - Town Plan Update

Bennington Town Plan Update – Phase 1
The Town of Bennington is seeking proposals for Municipal Planning, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) consultant services for Phase 1 of a two-phase Town Plan update process. Phase I will employ a multifaceted public engagement process to ensure the update process is accessible and productive. A summary of the DEI-informed public engagement process and its findings will be produced. Those findings will be condensed into an outline of community themes and priorities as a new content structure for the Town Plan, with specific findings regarding DEI concerns and opportunities in the community. A broader and deeper presentation of citizen concerns and needs will hone the town’s policies on all topics, but particularly housing, economic development, transportation, community facilities, and land use.
This Town Plan update is one of several efforts Bennington intends to pursue to implement the town’s vision of becoming “a welcoming, engaged, inclusive, and resilient community where everyone, regardless of identity, shares in our vitality and benefits from an outstanding quality of life".
